Single-handed, switch or double-handed rods are the norm when fishing for Atlantic Salmon. The type of rod depends on the river you are fishing and your casting ability. Your reels need to have a nice smooth drag and should be able to hold ample backing. The best lines for salmon fishing are multi-tip lines that enable you to vary the sink rate depending on water height and temperature. We will provide you with the recommended tackle requirements for your destination prior to your departure.
The world of Atlantic Salmon flies can be a daunting place; bombers, skaters, hitches, wet flies and tube flies. The options are almost endless but you will find certain fishermen swear by pattern x or y. In reality, they all work but certain colors are more effective in different water conditions. The most important aspects of a salmon fly are the size and weight. In heavy water, you need to be able to use a combination of fly lines and the fly to get the fly down to the fish. In low water, it's all about small flies and fishing on the surface with hitches or bombers which can result in some amazingly explosive takes.
